I bled forever with my first, my daughter. I went back for my 6 week check and was still bleeding and the doc. said "There's too much blood- you need to come back in 6 weeks as we can't do a pap, etc. because of all the blood."  He said it was totally OK and normal though.  With my son, I only bled about 3 weeks.  I didn't have stitches with either one of them- no tears, etc.  Just a difference in kiddos.  I think you are totally fine but if you are concerned, you can call your doc.  When I went back 6 weeks later, everything was fine.
